  • This Buffalo squad hung around with Penn State for a full half until the latter ended up putting their foot on the gas and blowing them out for the remainder of the game. Liberty was gashed for over 400 rushing yard, and although they are at home, I think UB has a better chance at controlling the tempo this game and winning by multiple scores. Final prediction 37-21.

    Last year La. Tech made a little noise as the season went on. This is a good matchup for both teams with Bowling Greens speed. The Under looks good to me though as both offenses have struggled so far this season.

    My Pick: Under 59 60%

    I'm not saying the MAC is comparable to the big boys but they always test themselves with big schools. Central Michigan reminds me of Wake Forest or Purdue. Akron is small and fast but I think Central Michigan pounds on Akron and gets the win.

    My Pick: Central Michigan -2.5 70%

    The Idaho State whatever they are lol, aren't one of the better FCS teams so going into Utah is a suicide mission. However, Utah will have a date with the USC Trojans next Friday, which means the Utes should be focused on getting the win and getting the hell out of there. This will be one of those classic blowouts before the big game scenarios. -36.5 is a lot and I'd like it a lot more at -32 or so but I think starters sit early so I'm going on the side of the team i don't know much about because they held some pretty good programs tight in recent histroy and that Utah date with USC coming up.

    My Pick: Idaho St. +36.5 70%

    I believe we will get Georgia and the Over but I feel really good about the Over they should get close to 58 by half time, Georgia jumps out fast.

    My Pick: Over 58

  • South Alabamas struggled last year against Orth and while he has graduated,

    Cephus Johnson has taken the reins of the offense, which has become option-based. The Jaguars also tuned up for this game with an overmatched FCS opponent in week 2. South Alabama set a school record with 413 rushing yards, in a strong bounce-back performance after the hard fight against Nebraska. I think South Alabama can hold their own in this one. They have a strong front 7 that I think can manage the read option of Memphis.

    My Pick: South Alabama +19.5 50%

    Boston College beat down. Not supposed to be different leagues but these two are leagues apart. Kansas has promise this year; for a better year at least but not winning this game.

    My Pick: Boston College -20

    The Tulsa D has been a force so far this season, allowing just 4.5 yards per play for the year and dominating the run to the tune of 3.1 yards/rush allowed. They'll look to lean on that defense to slow Oklahoma State down and keep them in the game on Saturday. Tylan Wallace will be an issue for Tulsa on the outside - he was a monster last week getting 3 TD scores on 180 receiving yards! Even if Tulsa can get things going early with the Run, at some point they'll have to play catchup against this speedy passing attack under Mike Gundy. At some point, the Golden Hurricane will need to open up and toss it downfield and it will be a matchup nightmare imo as these OSU Db's are accustom to Big 12 receivers. OSU covers.

    My Pick: Oklahoma St. -14 70%

  • Keep in mind in this one, Stanfords starting QB KJ Costello returns from missing the USC loss because of concussion issues. He's probably quite upset about watching that from the sideline. But UCF can air it out and after watching Stanford give up nearly 400 yds passing and 3 tds to a true freshman last week, I have no faith in them to outright win. I do like the OVER in this one. The Cardinals are 6-1 in their last 7 games following a straight up loss and 4-1 in their last 5 games on grass - that'll make you want to play a Moneyline value bet, right?! The Cardinal could pull it off but I think they definitely get their share of points.

    My Pick: Over 59.5

    Comparing results, especially in the early portion of the college football season, is not for the faint of heart. Taking a team's reults in an attempt to predict outcomes is not always a productive plan.

    For example -- Georgia State opened its season by winning at Tennessee, 38-30.

  • Tar Heel Times: Mack Brown: Good energy this week, evaluating center, and why he left App State after one season

    Mack Brown: "The energy has been really good this week. We talked about the lack of energy we had Friday, that you have to earn the right to win and if you don't come out with all you've got and play your best, you're probably not going to win. We're not good enough to do that at this point. Practice yesterday was really good, practice was really good today." (Heels Maven)

  • Fansided: Miami football senior safety Robert Knowles more focused in 2019

    Robert Knowles was a safety net for the Miami football team in their loss to North Carolina earlier this month. Knowles was focused like a starter when he had to enter the game after junior starting safety Amari Carter was ejected for targeting against the Tar Heels He finished with a career high tying five tackles versus North Carolina.

    Knowles' performance against North Carolina earned him his first career start on Saturday against Bethune-Cookman. He finished two tackles, a half tackle for loss and a fumble recovery that was the first time Knowles got to wear the turnover chain.

  • Card Chronicle: Seedy K's Peerless Pigskin Prognostications: Week IV

    Quick recap: Purdue's defense played like they'd been drinking boilermakers instead of engineering and building them. The Tar Heels came back to earth. Florida State self destructed. Again. Kentucky did what Kentucky has traditionally done. And the University of Louisville Cardinals continue to show improvement, but that they still have a way to go.

    Which is to, in an oh so subtle manner, advise that the kid was a perfect 5-0 last weekend.

    Not bad for someone who believes the shtick is more important than the predictions.

    12-5 for the year rounds out to 70% correctitude.

  • Fansided: FSU Football in the NFL: 2019 season Week 3 schedule

    Man, it has not been a good start to the college football season for the FSU football fan base...but at least those in garnet and gold have had plenty to root for in the pro game, right? I mean, the Jacksonville Jaguars...okay, not a good example. What about the Miami Dolph...never mind. Ummm...the Tampa Bay Bucs won a game last week?

    Okay, so maybe it hasn't been the best of times to be a pro football fan from the Sunshine State either, but with 15 regular season weeks left, things have to change...right? The Dolphins have to win a game...right?

    Fansided: Clemson Football: CBS already showing major SEC bias

    It didn't take long for CBS to change its mind about who the No. 1 team in the country was.

    Despite Clemson football being ranked No. 1 in every other major poll, CBS decided to move the Alabama Crimson Tide into the No. 1 spot following the Tide's impressive (*cough*chuckle*cough) win over South Carolina.

    Though Alabama gave up 23 points to the Gamecocks and it very well could've been more had it not been for poor coaching and officiating, the organization made the decision that Alabama deserved to be ranked ahead of Clemson football.

  • Tomahawk Nation: FSU fans' confidence in program direction rebounds after UVA game

    What a difference a week makes. After the Seminoles broke into the win column against UL-Monroe, Florida State fans showed their disdain for how the 'Noles played, needing overtime to top the Warhawks. No surveyed fanbase in the country was less confident in the direction of its program.

    But after FSU's first road and conference game, a close loss to Virginia, our Tomahawk Nation FanPulse voters reacted much more positively. Here are the weekly totals, regarding how many of you are confident in the direction of the Florida State program:

    The lowest confidence level is a tie between Stanford and Rutgers, at 0%.

    The Clemson Insider: Big Peach State OL 'can't wait' to visit Clemson Saturday

Perhaps our answer to that last question will surprise you...

    From @Hamet4Deep: Dillon Gabriel looks like the real deal. Enough to finally get UCF some respect? Or just another Boise State of the 2000s?

    UCF made a statement over the weekend by rolling visiting Stanford, 45-27, behind an impressive performance by QB Dillon Gabriel. The true freshman, who is the fourth quarterback to start for UCF in its last six games, went 22-of-30 for 347 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions.
